At the crest of College Hill overlooking the town 
of Framingham, Massachusetts, stands the First State 
Normal School in America, now the State Teachers 
College at Framingham. Here for over a century 
teachers have been trained in the art of guiding 
children to a fuller, happier, more purposeful way 
of life as upright citizens of a democratic community. 

Now for the fourth time in its history Framingham 
must listen to the roar of battle drums. War in its 
world wide stride is affecting every aspect of life 
on the Hill, its students, its activities, yes, even its 
curriculum. Yet in the midst of this storm and stress, 
there have been sunny, happy hours that will live in 
the memory of all. It is with these thoughts in mind, 
then that we, the Class of Nineteen Hundred Fouy- 
Four ask you to listen as we sing our saga. . .

President O'Connor for being a loyal friend for 
the four years we have spent at Framingham. His 
Kind and tactful guidance has increased our under-

years on the hill.

Dean Lamed for accepting her new duties in her 
usual energetic manner. Untiring and resourceful, 
she had already earned our respect and admiration 
before she became Dean. Each day since her ap-

To Lieutenant Edwin J. Haertl, United States 
Army, who left Framingham in the middle of the 
year. His faithful work in the Biology Department 
will be missed by all who were associated with 
him. We wish him all possible success in his new 
field and a speedy return to Framingham.

To Ensign James B. Sullivan, United States Naval 
Reserve, who, although he left the college more 
than a year ago, is still remembered not only for his 
valuable contribution as advisor for previous Dials, 
but also for his work in the Science Department. 
We sincerely hope that his absence will be of short

Half goddess, half human the freshmen appeared at their 
initiation week. They saluted and sang for the seniors and 
sent them lovely Rowers at the end of the week. Early in 
October they got together at a fine acquaintance party. 
Ellen Moran, Lucy Zaretto and Kay Walsh as top officers of 
Student Government watched the games of introduction and 
joined in the dancing. Ruthie Hasleton came to the lime 
light as class president and Joline Bonin followed her as 
vice president. Evelyn Hunter keeps the reports of their 
meetings and their financing is entrusted to Jeanne Oliver, 
with Miss Chase as their faculty advisor. Their years on the 
hill should be enjoyable for themselves and for all who 
come in contact with them. They have certainly made a 
zestful start.

"Any bonds today?" Yes and everyday — 
thanks to the bonds and stamp sales of the 
sophomore class, under Virginia Bray as presi- 
dent. Vice president Jean Miller, secretary 
Mary Mahoney, and treasurer Mary Pickering 
plus the ambitious and energetic '46 ers have 
done their utmost to make this war effort a 
reality and a credit to the school. Their May 
Day, as one would expect was the essence of 
beauty. And why not? We had seen the 
results of their endeavors before and we real- 
ized that Mrs. Herring as faculty advisor had 
added her artistic hand to help yield the charm 
of their May Day.

"Only one more river to cross. . . " The 

crossing won't be hard for this class with 
president Dorothy Carpenter and vice presi- 
dent Rory O'Connell at the helm. Yeoman 
Barbara Ann Ellis and auditor Phil Pennucci 
with Miss Brosnan as faculty advisor are 
helping to guide their class to a brilliant 
senior year. At the end of October the 
Class of '45 had their wonderful Junior 
week-end with a theatre party, hike, weenie 
roast, banquet, and a service men's dance. 
The big event of any Junior year is the 
Junior Prom. It has an air and splendor all 
its own and their prom too had this never 
to be forgotten quality.

"Oh to be a senior now that June is here. . . " The underclassmen have that loolc 
of envy. However we envy the underclassmen and hope that their senior year will be 
as rich as ours was. How we lorded it over our new sisters during freshmen initiati on 
week, and how vice president Anne O'Hare amiably terrified them at freshmen co urt! 
After our faculty-sznior-freshmzn tea they discovered that we really were human, and 
friendship and sistership has grown through these months. President Barbara Mullin 
accepted our banner at the Alumnae association acquaintance party. Also at that 
party we introduced to the alumnae our secretary Jean McCarty and Rene Moran who 
guards our gold. Christmas caroling, Arbor Day, Senior prom, Baccalaureate and even- 
final exams came and went — but not to be forgotten. Miss Carter, our faculty advisor, 
had us all employed on some phase of our class day play, and finally, day of day, we 
graduated "... with many a smile and a few little tears. . . "

"Hark the Herald Angels Sing ..." Senior caroling — cold but merry. . .Cutting, stitching, fitting, and Barb and Mary in 
Senior Clothing solve their problems for an Easter coat.

Tonight Symphony Hall is filled to capacity, for we 
are about to witness the symphony by the Class of 
Nineteen Hundred Forty-Four. The orchestra is 
tuning to the Oboe's A and the conductor is poised 
with his baton — now on with the music! 

The first strains that reach us dre dissonant — • 1940 
— Registration Day! That certainly was a confusing 
day with bewildered freshmen waving to departing 
parents, and seniors greeting their friends with a cry 
of "I can't find my freshman anywhere," all this and 
the grueling ordeal of waiting in line to pay the 
budget fee, filling out program cards, and waiting for 
physical exams. 

However, after that initial day was over and the 
freshmen got together we exclaimed to each other 
"Isn't Framingham a friendly place!" — this statement 
to be exemplified many more times during our college 

There certainly was no time for homesickness those 
first few weeks, for they were crowded full of fun 
with Initiation Week (one time we were thankful 
Framingham was not co-ed), Freshmen Court, Senior- 
Freshmen Tea, and Field Day. And just lor a little 
more excitement we freshmen planned a weenie 
roast on the back hill. 

About the middle of November there was much 
rivalry brewing about the campus, which brought 
about the wearing of the red or blue. . Harvard- 
Yale Week-end initiated by the Mock Man Dance 
and culminating in the banquet in Peirce Hall. This 
proved to be very exciting — especially for the 

With the end of our first college semester ap- 
proaching we felt the need for much studying, for 
before long we would experience those mid semester 
exams. If we lived through them we felt that we 
really could call ourselves college students. 

The beginning of the second semester brought us 
Stunt Night and revealed the faculty in a new and 
pleasing light — what grand sports they were! The 
juniors danced their way to the top of the list for 
the award and we all agreed that it was a marvelous 

The rest of the semester seemed to fly by, for we 
were continually making new friends and gaining 
new interests and preparing for finals. Finals — what 
a frightening word! We hoped they wouldn't be as 
fatal as the name implied! 

Then came Framingham night at Pops and that 
brings us right back to Symphony Hall and the end of 
the first movement of our Symphony. We see the 
Glee Club in flowing pastels and hear not disso- 
nance this time, but beautiful blended harmony. 


Summer's end brought us to the beginning of our 
sophomore year. The orchestra suddenly swells into 
music and the harmony which reaches us is a trifle 
more varied and sophisticated than that of the first 
movement. With a feeling of certainty and slight 
superiority we returned to school and viewed the 
incoming freshmen. 

This year brought to the faculty five new members, 
Miss Lusk, Mrs. Herring, Miss Pratt, Miss Rust, and 
Dr. Haertl. Yet before we had graduated two of 

these instructors had deserted us — one, Miss Lusk, 
for marriage, and the other, Dr. Haertl, for his 
country's service. 

It wasn't very long before we were climbing the 
stairs to the Assembly Hall on a Friday night in 
November to see the Fine Arts play, "Brief Music.'' 
We spent a very enjoyable evening, our admission 
fees being our Budget Ticket which we purchased 
in the Fall for school activities. It was well that the 
Club presented a comedy, because shortly after this 
evening, on December 7 the United States entered 
the war, and school and all our activities took on a 
more somber note. Over night the music of our lives 
had changed. 

Our first formal dance of the year, off campus, 
sponsored by the A'Kempis Club was held at the 
Hotel Statler in Boston. With new and sparkling 
dresses we danced the evening through, our excite- 
ment undimmed by the persistent rain outside. 

We began our Christmas decorations with each 
class competing for the best Christmas basket. This 
year the Candlelight Service made a deeper im- 
pression upon us, each one thinking of a Christmas 
in the war-torn world of the day. We departed for 
home for the holidays with a strong resolve to 
combat the dismal spirit which was universally 
prevalent, by being all the more cheerful. 

Perhaps the climax of our second year was Stunt 
Night. Enthusiastically we entered into rehearsals. 
It was indeed a proud night when we won first 
prize with our presentation of the 9:20 Club. This 
long awaited evening was fully appreciated as we 
watched our classmates and faculty members, forget- 
ful of their dignity, expressing hidden talents. 

Sadly and mournfully the orchestra played on as 
we struggled over sophomore plaids. Now the 
theme changed and in its place a gay and lilting 
air. . .our plaids were finished. 

For many weeks we had been planning our May 
Day, a day always dedicated to beauty. Although 

we were not blessed with bright and sunny weather, 
we presented on two successive days our traditional 
Chapel, crowning of the queen, and May Pole 

We now found ourselves in the midst of spring 
flowers, balmy days, and final exams. Exhausted, yet 
relieved we finished our sophomore year. 


As the curtain goes up for the third movement, we 
hear lighter strains of music and see many new faces 
on the stage. Our beloved Dean Savage, after 
twenty years of service, has retired, and Mrs. 
Driscoll, a graduate of the school, has taken her place 
as Acting Dean for a year. As the year progressed 
more changes occurred. Mr. Gilday, now Lt. 
Gilday, U.S.N.R. gave up his baton to go to war. 
Many thanks to Miss Brett who carried on for him 
in order to give our graduates a good send off and 
to Miss Kendrick, who took over the music classes. 
When Mr. Sullivan, now Ensign Sullivan, U.S.N.R., 
went into service we lost our exhibit A for our 
Child Study classes. We'll always remember Mr. and 
Mrs. Sullivan as they walked into the A'Kempis 
Dance to the strains of "Here Comes the Bride." 
Ensign Sullivan was succeeded by Mr. Kenny, whose 
ready smile and abundance of enthusiasm have readily 
won him a place in our hearts. 

It wasn't long after our return in 1942 that we 
began our social activities with Junior Weekend. 
Our glorious day started with a hike to the reservoir 

where we enjoyed a weenie roast, burnt marsh- 
mallows, and juicy red apples. The termination of 
this perfect day was at the Village Hall where we 
gave a formal dance and invited Camp Framingham. 
Sunday offered a dinner banquet at Seller's and a 
buffet supper at Crocker. 

The plans and discussions for Junior Prom came in 
rapid succession, and it became a reality on December 
4th, with its grand march, favors, men, and the 
fulfillment of a date we had kept since freshmen year. 
Its White Christmas theme was carried out by the 
music, snowy white bells, angel decorations, and 
the green and red punch and Christmas cookies 
made at Crocker. 

Which of us is not acquainted with that certain 
unforgettable feeling that crops up in some part of 
junior year? That is our first day of practice teaching, 
when we began to put into practice all the theory 
study and preparation of the two previous years, 
whether the work be done as an elementary at the 
I raining School or as an "H.A." in the various towns 
of the surrounding communities. 

New experiences were also acquired by the 
Household Arts and Vocational girls who spent a 
worthwhile period of house practice at Crocker and 
the "Voc" House. 

The Fine Arts players scored another victory by 
their grand performance in the war drama "Letters 
to Lucerne," a story of how conflicting personalities 
and friendships of students from various countries 
were affected by the strain of war in an American 
School in Switzerland. 

Honors went to seniors for Stunt Night this year. 
Remember the faculty's original operetta, the seniors 
recalling previous years, our story of friends at war, 
the sophomore s "Super Suds and the Mexican 
influenced rreshmen? 

As the curtain falls for the third movement of our 
symphony, wild ecstastic .shouts of joy resound 
through the hall expressing its success. 


Ine fourth and final movement of the Class of 44 
began with majestic and dignified passages as seniors 
walked down the aisle garbed in cap and gown, for 
Investiture Chapel. 

Every year brings changes. -■ this year was no 
exception. In Dwight Hall on the first floor we 
glimpsed our new dean, Miss Larned, new as dean, 
but familiar as an old friend and teacher. We said 
goodbye to our gay and popular Miss Lusk, and in 
her place welcomed Mrs. Lewis to the Art Depart- 
ment. We also met our new assistant librarian, Miss 
Mahoney, on the first day we entered the library as 

At a very delightful tea in Crocker we were 
introduced to the officers and members of the 
Alumnae Association. In this way we came to know 
more about the organization and saw it as a vital 
part of our college. 

Our formal Dial Dance was a great success, with 
its Hallowe'en theme characterized by black cats, 
witches and autumn leaves. Among the guests were 
servicemen from the Cushing General Hospital. 

The Fine Arts play was "tops" this year. "Cry 
Havoc" was its name and it exemplified the brave 
work of our nurses on Bataan. So realistic was the 
acting that it was hard for us to conceive that we 
were still in tranquil Framingham when the curtain 
went down. 

I he day for which we seemed to have inexhausti- 
ble energy came just before Christmas vacation, 
when bundled in ski suits we made the usual carol 
singing tour. We always appreciated Crocker's 
hospitality, but it was this night that our realization 
was the fullest when we were served hot cocoa 
and muffins to warm our rigid extremities. 

When we were freshmen the day seemed very 
far off when we as seniors should be presenting our 
chapel talks. The time has flown quickly by and 
now senior chapels have come and gone. It was a 
shock to realize that our undergraduate days had 
passed so rapidly. 

In May came both our happiest and our saddest 
dance — Senior Prom — for each of us while listening 
to the music knew that this was the last dance that 
we ever could attend as students. 

Then. .. graduation. - -the culmination of tour 
yecirs at Framingham- . .the final burst of music... 
and as the conductor lowers his baton in one de- 
cisive sweep, the music ends and our Forty-Fourth 
Symphony is over.

As freshmen, Peirce Hall, home for such forlorn beings 
welcomed us. There the first problems of college were often 
forgotten in sings at the piano in the hospitable living room, 
or gatherings in the homey alcoves. Catching up on current 
literature was easy — all you had to do was go down to 
dinner early and spend a few minutes with the "Reader's 
Digest" in one of the alcoves (if you got there first). Life 
was not always social though. We did retire almost regu- 
larly at 7:30 to our rooms, though more often collective than 
respective, to study until 9:30. Birthday parties in the big 
rooms beyond the fire doors, splashing of water and dripping 
hair, excited calls in the corridors all marked the end of the 
study periods. We'll never forget dashing to breakfast at 
breakneck speed because we waited to rise until the 7:25 
bell, the washing and ironing monotony in the laundry, and 
the 5:00 A.M. rising the day before Christmas vacation — ■ 
our initiation into Senior Caroling in the dorm! Sophomore 
year Mrs. Monihan saw much more of us,- in fact we really 
grew acquainted. Notorious soph-headaches (plaids, Chem 
exams, psychology) were the reason, but we liked the time 
to chat too. Sophomore year finally completed we find 
ourselves moving to

. . .9:30 p.m.. . what more is needed for one of those bull 
sessions unless it be the impetus — birthday? holiday? just good

Is it Frank Sinatra that the girls are gathered to hear, or is it "Inner Sanctum"? Or perhaps as Peirce Hall Officers 
they are planning one of those smooth dorm dances. Whatever the cause for the gathering, Florence Lynch, secretary; Helen 
Gardner, president; Jo Dean, treasurer; and Jean Geehan, vice president, seem to be enjoying the occasion.

Noisy Crocker on week-days when Miss 
Hall tried to concentrate on menus in the 
dining room with the hubbub of reducing 
exercises directly overhead! Many were 
the laughable (now) and lamentable (then) 
instances of junior jitters. Remember Lucy's 
fishless chowder, Nancy's conga silver 
polishing and the Indian meal pudding we 
made with canned corn? But despite these 
minor disturbances, teas, receptions and 
company dinners added training in poise 
and welcome experience to immature home 
economists. Nor were the well remembered 
work shifts wholly fruitless, for by actually 
having done the work we shall be better 
judges of its being well-done. We will 
remember Crocker Hall also for "breakfast 
privilege" — late breakfast to you uninitiated 
if anything be needed to stimulate our 
memories of house practice. Then as Seniors 
we returned to

and re-echoed across the room and through the corridors. 
We said good-bye to a loyal friend, Miss Swan, in the middle 
of the year, but her successor, Miss Johnson, will compen- 
sate for the loss. Despite the activity and gaiety, there is an 
undercurrent of sadness about being in Horace Mann... 
this is our last year of dorm life. . . However if you're a 
"Voc" you'll spend part of your time at 

"The mail's in!" . . . No announcement brings quicker response 
as girls rush to the living room, watching eagerly for that stamp- 
less letter, or the one trimmed in red, white, and blue. 

"Life" at Horace Mann does have relaxing moments when H.A.'s., Elementaries and Vocs get together just for fun. 
It may be for the latest issue of a favorite magazine, or a sing at the piano, or knitting a row, pearling a row, or just plain 
sociability that is the attraction, but Horace Mann's living room is always in use . . . Going and coming the House Officers

Cooperation, the keynote in our democratic way of life, is important even for first-

Claire Fitzpatrick, treasurer, be anything but a forceful and responsible group to whom 
we all look for guidance and in whom we all find a friend and helper! Add to this list 
Miss Rust as faculty advisor and you will see why Student Government on the hill is so 
successful. Aside from their regular duties this group took time out to run a very sue-

looped around the hall for an unforgettable evening. Besides this executive assemblage 

we are also served by 

The C.C.C. which isn't what you think it is until some kind person informs you. 
Perhaps Kay Walsh, its able chairman, would help you out. Kay and her committee, 
composed of presidents from the various classes and clubs, form this notable council — 
hence Class and Club Council. They make up our calendar to make sure that dates

"You'd better watch out, you'd better take care." The Judicial Board has its eye 
on you. Headed by chairman Lucy Zaretto, the board is composed of a senior repre- 
sentative in the person of Pat Wermers, two juniors, Maddie Moran and Arlene Martin, 
and one sophomore, Mabel Champney. This board has a very important and serious 
function. With the exception of academic matters it considers all cases of discipline. 
Fortunately it is usually unemployed. But not so with 

The S.A.B.F., of which we on the hill are very proud. Each year the students and 
the alumnae work together to raise money for our Student Alumnae Building Fund. We 
have hopes of someday building a recreational hall for the use and convenience of all 
students and alumnae. Lucy Zaretto, as chairman, supervises the Mart, our college 
supply store. Here we have everything from personalized stationery to banners and 
stamps. Your every wish is fulfilled in the Mart and the earnings go to the building fund.

Dean Dorothy Larned, Miss Sarah Cummings,

students, were privileged to attend this interest- 
ing meeting. It started with a general session 
at 10 a. m., headed by Julius E., Warren, the

freshman biology and household physics labora- 

Mrs. Welch, a resident of Framingham, is a

a good time was had by all at the Gatepost Dance. 

"Extra! Extra! Read all about the latest doings at F.T.C.!" Once every month 
during the academic year the college newspaper, "The Gate Post," is published. Timely, 
informative., educational, and amusing, each issue of the paper is an event. Classes stop 
while students peruse "The Gate Post's" columns. Another activity of the Staff is the 
annual semi-formal dance. Again on February 5, 1944 "The Gate Post" staff lived up 
to its traditions with a five star edition of a headline dance. 

As a member of the Columbia Scholastic Press Association, "The Gate Post" is 
constantly on the watch for improvements. Each issue, thanks to the extraordinary direc- 
tion of Editor Louise Palladino and her hard working staff, is a step forward toward the 
best that can be offered.

In a dreamy mood? Remembering those soft lights and sweet music at the "Dial" 
dance? Well, meet the girls responsible for that good time you enjoyed! Dances, 
year books, dead-lines are just duck pie for these girls. Under the guidance of Mary 
Louise Bowen, editor, they have tried this new type of "Dial". The understanding

ment. The literary articles supplied by. . .Betty Breen and Kaye Gully on Data. . -yes,

The natty, smart arrangement of the "Dial" is the skillful work of Jean McCarty, the 
Art editor. But what would all this be without the co-operation and successful manage- 
ment of the business affairs by Ann Garvin, the subscriptions by Helen Pettingill and 
the advertising by Mary Dillon. The untiring work of these girls, though not shown 
directly in these pages must be apparent to anyone knowing the demands of these 
positions. This, then is the staff who proudly presents "The 1944 Dial!" 

". . .and because they are so fine we'll cheer them all the time, we'll cheer,

The Dial Staff wishes to express 
its sincere appreciation to those 
members of the faculty whose never 
ceasing efforts helped to make this 
annual possible. To Dean Lamed 
we especially give a vote of thanks 
for her executive guidance, and to 
Mrs. Herring and Miss Sparrow for 
their invaluable help in the art and 
literary departments. We also wish 
to express our gratitude to Miss 
Hunt for her assistance in photog-

direction in the use of terms for our

"Curtain call for Cry Havoc!" "Curtain call for Cry Havoc!" With thoughts of 
war engraved on our minds, the story of the nurses on Bataan seemed a fitting theme for 
our annual play. After a few days of try-outs. Miss Kingman, our faculty advisor, chose 
the cast and started the work of organizing and directing. Sally Palmer, president, was 
the student chairman, and Lillian Condos, vice president had the lead. This play even 
had the distinction of "going on the road" as far as South Framingham. 

L. Condos, vice president, stops in to tell L. St. Thomas, treasurer, about her new role, while Miss 
Kingman explains some artwork principles to A. Henderson, secretary, and S. Plamer, president, at 
a meeting of the Craft Group of the Fine Arts Club. 

Snappy little leather pins, the result of many afternoon's work in Room 35 of 
Dwight Hall, distinguish the members of the craft group, who under the chairmanship 
of Pearl Woodruff and the guidance of Mrs. Herring have availed themselves of 
another of this club's opportunities.

From the simple act of "squashing tin cans for defense' to contributing 
to the World Fellowship Fund, the members of the Home Economics Club 
demonstrate that they are aware of present day problems. Under the leader- 
ship of president Ruth Carroll, her very capable officers, and Miss Elizabeth 
MacMillan, advisor, the Home Economics Club is constantlyworking to be of 
greater benefit to the school and community. Beginning with the Fall Style 
Show which is presented to interest all students in the club, proceeding to 
International Night. . . outstanding this year with its gay "Pan American 
Theme . . .and concluding with the annual May Supper, all meetings of the 
Home Economics Club are duly interesting and instructive to its members. . .

Everyone has heard of the Newman Federation of college Catholic Clubs. At 
Framingham ours is the A'Kempis Club, and its president, Kay O'Meara, has suc- 
ceeded in making it a club of Catholic culture and Catholic fellowship. Reverend 
Edward F. Sweeney as spiritual advisor has inspired all in his monthly talks. The fall

We at Framingham are justly proud of our former A'Kempis Club chaplain, Father James E. Dunford.

On the Social side — recall December 4, 1943. Vice-president Catherine Haggerty, 
secretary Claire Fitzpatrick, club members plus most of the school were all dressed 
up with some place to go. Yes, the Sheraton Hotel in Boston and the big formal of the 
year. Sometime after the excitement of that wonderful evening had passed, treasurer, 
Esther Brady found the increased funds most helpful for charity and for increasing our 
Catholic literature in the library.

Biruta Welaish, Lena WaGew and Charlotte Hatch of the Young Women's Christian 
Association. Essentially Y ' serves its members by encouraging a more complete life 
of work, worship and play. The "Y" reading shelf in the periodical room of our 
library in Dwight Hall affords everyone inspirational literature and information on 
world social problems. Morning services, conducted by a club member, and held 
weekly in Peirce Hall alcove have served many of us who have lived in the dormitories. 
Moonlight Mood, our Y mid-January semi-formal with service men as special 
guests brings back happy memories of one of the best campus dances of the season. 
All of which goes to prove that the Y.W.C.A. looks after the social as well as the 
spiritual need of its members.

Chemistry tests, Zaner Bloser penmanship, modern dance rhythms, Old English lettering, basketball games, square 
cornered beds in Home Nursing, volley ball, badminton — all these are part of students experiences in Wells Hall. A host 
of such recollections is conjured up by the sight of this doorway.

Down the hill from the dormitory or bus stop come dignified senior Elementaries, very professional, and 
their more frightened sisters, the juniors, to stay at the Jonathan Maynard School for a student teaching period 
of eight weeks. Some junior Household Arts students spend two days here every week for sixteen weeks 
teaching sewing and cooking.

On Sunday afternoons returning juniors and seniors carrying heavy suitcases from the bus stop sigh with 
relief when at last Horace Mann doorway comes into sight. From the third and second floor windows come 
shouts of greeting and encouragement to the girls returning from a weekend or vacation visit home. 

Beautiful as these pillars are, there are times when they obstruct the 
view. On the occasion of a dorm dance in Horace Mann Hall the 
non-dancer from the north wing window can barely see the couples 
below in the living room.

In winter new-fallen snow on May Hall steps rapidly disappears 
trampled by many feet on their way to Chapel, clothing or food classes, 
the faculty room, or Assembly. Avalanches of snow from the roof above

from everyone in or connected with Horace Mann Hall

Here in all its winter splendor, the entrance to our college for the pedestrian — 
the Gate. This is the interesting, inviting vista of walk, snow covered trees, and 
Wells and May Halls in the distance which presents itself to the newcomer, or 
old friend, who climbs the hill. Truly a refreshing sight after arduously toiling up 
the steep slope that lies in front of these guardians of the entrance to the campus. 

Horace Mann doorway welcomes the returning week-ender on Sunday night with its light over the door 
shining down the path. Many carols sung from senior throats have echoed against its panels at Christmas time. 
This portal is also watched every night and morning for the entrance of the mail-girls.

Over this lawn numerous daisy chains have marked the close of another senior year. Here also pictures 
are taken, for it is a favorite with amateur photographers with its gracious sweep of lawn, interesting balustrade 
and imposing pillars. The terrace between the balustrade and the pillars is also a favorite spot for sitting 
outdoors during warm spring and fall days.

Usually students are running up the walk from Peirce Hall to Dwight Hall to make class on time. The 
range of classes in Dwight is wide — biology, history, geography, English, teaching methods and problems, 
sociology, ethics, economics, physics, physiology, French, art, music. Dwight also has an excellent library, 
students' room, and recreation room.

Through this gracefully arched, imposing door to historic May Hall, have passed 
many generations of women dedicating their lives to the service of others. Many times 
this entrance has felt the tread of the marching feet of the seniors, going to Investiture 
Chapel or Arbor Day exercises. On Friday it is unfamiliar unless packed with suitcases 
ready for the dash to the bus after the last class. Many a hand knows the weight of those 
massive doors against a fresh March wind. In winterche beauty of this doorway is softened 
by outlines of white against the weathered brick, and in summer by classic outlines against 
which ivy clusters. 

This drive marks the southern boundary of the Framingham campus. Not as familiar as some of the other drives, 
nevertheless it too has its place in our memory hall. Tennis players, hot and breathless after a same, find even this 
short driveway a difficult climb. Thankful indeed is the worn-out athlete to turn off to the dormitories for a rest. 
This driveway is also known to the Vocational girls who use it in their mad dash from the Vocational House to

The beauty of Framingham's . ampus in spring may well be exemplified by this picture of May Hall, its circle 
drive and the interesting entrances over which float the state and national flags. This picture will bring nostalgic 
memories of returns from walks when we halted to enjoy the beauty of the sun-dappled, ivy-covered walls of 
this historic building. 

Caroling seniors stop at 178 Maple Street, the Vocational House, to bring Christmas cheer to Miss Lombard 
and the girls in house practice. After singing "O Come All Ye Faithful" and "The First Noel," the carolers 
depart, their pockets laden with candy kisses thrown from doorway and windows.

CONGRATULATIONS upon your opportunity to join the Alumnae 
Association of the STATE TEACHER'S COLLEGE at Framingham, an 
organization to which you are all eligible by virtue of your graduation! 
The dues are only an annual Dollar, which you can nowhere expend 
more satisfactorily. You will belong to a unique organization, made 
up of hundreds of women who will contribute to the richness of your 
life, and whom you will have an opportunity to see every two years. 
If you are fortunate enough to be chosen to the Council as one of the 
two delegates from your class or the one delegate from your club, you 
can see fifty or more of these women every spring and fall. You do 
not even have to be a delegate,- you can simply come to the council 
meetings and listen. 

It is the Framingham "tradition'' for everybody to come to all 
alumnae gatherings. It should be equally the "tradition" for every 
alumna to pay association dues. Services that you can be proud of 
are rendered by alumnae funds: scholarships, help to incapacitated 
teachers, particularly to those who are aged, preservation of historical 
material, and other good works too numerous to mention here. For 
the Alumnae Association is a grown-up daughter of its Alma Mater, 
an adult individual, or entity, with initiative, purpose, beauty and 
strength of character, and with a quick and living consciousness of 
the century-old motto LIVE TO THE TRUTH. 

We shall confidently expect to greet you all at your first biennial, 
and after that one experience you will not want to miss a meeting if 
you can by any means get there. For many years you will mount the 
stairs and walk over the slippery floors with ease. You will find your- 
self helping older women and even the very aged. Finally the time 
will come when you yourselves, still making frequent pilgrimages to 
the hill, will lean gratefully upon younger sisters, and having recovered 
your breath after the hard climb, look about with joyful eyes for the 
friends of your whole life, who have also remembered the old school 
and college, and who are sure to be looking about for you. 

The Alumnae Association is your reward for your four years of 
study. Extend your interest beyond your class and form the ties with 
young and old graduates which will enrich your entire life. The best 
wishes of the officers of the association, speaking of course for all the 
alumnae, drz cordially and sympathetically with you as you take up 
the noble profession to which you are dedicated.

Viewed from across the circle drive, Crocker Hall basks in the late afternoon sunshine. Home of the 
juniors for half a year, well do they know that wide front porch where on sultry June evenings or cool 
September evenings they rested from their duties in kitchen, serving, or dining rooms. The view across the 
lawn and down the hill is restful and inspiring with the reservoir shimmering in the distance. Even in winter 
when snow shrouds the bare trees, heaps in drifts across the lawn, and turns the reservoir to gray ice, the 
hostess whose duty it is to sweep the walk is struck by the splendor of that view.

In appearance and in fact the Vocational House is a home. In their freshman, junior, and senior years the Vocational 
girls move here from the hill. For eight weeks each year under the guidance of Miss Lonbard the students take over the 
management of this house. From breakfast cook to housekeeper each girl has her appointed duty. Each week duties change 
so that by the end of the eight weeks each girl has been cook, hostess, housekeeper, and waitress at least once. What good 
wives these girls ought to make!

To mark our school and establish its position in American education this plaque, set appropriately in eternal 
stone, and placed close to the path leading from the gate onto the college grounds presents the importantdates in the history 
of Framingham. The plaque reads "The First State Normal School in America," for our school originated at Lexington in 
1 839. When the classes outgrew the Lexington site, and after the years spent at West Newton from 1 844-1 853, the school 
moved to its present site at Framingham when the first two class buildings — May and Wells Halls were erected. Placed 
here by the Class of 1909, the stone has grown more attractive with the passing years' growth of luxuriant ivy, and has 
become one of the first places to which visitors are conducted.

From Horace Mann lawn, the tennis court presents a much different aspect in winter from the summer appearance. 
Snow laden trees, bushes, and vines change the natural beauty which is in this view during summer to an unreal dreamlike 
beauty. But this blanket of snow will melt from the tennis court and drop from the vines and trees and with the approach 
of warm weather, green will replace the white. Then instead of lying silent, motionless as in the picture, the tennis court 
will ring with the shouts of tennis players and onlookers, and moving bodies will Rash over the court, bringing back its old
